This was a beautiful place to watch the sunset at the end of the day. There are many places to eat in the area and there is even a nice ice cream place nearby to grab some.

Stopped by this place for a few minutes last week and enjoyed the views all around. That being said, this is barely a beach in my opinion as it is slowly regenerating. Nice place to chill and watch the surfers.
